Tedford Housing Announces New Executive Director, Rota Knott

BRUNSWICK, Maine (December 12, 2019) – After an extensive national search, the board of directors is pleased to announce the hiring of Rota Knott as the next executive director of Tedford Housing. Knott will take over leadership from Craig Phillips, who is retiring, on January 6, 2020.

Knott has more than a decade of experience in nonprofit leadership and administration. She was previously executive director of the Somerset County Local Management Board in Maryland, where she successfully grew the organization’s annual funding support for nonprofits and community partners that address the needs of children, youths, and families. She holds the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) designation and is certified in Results-Based Accountability and planning for outcomes measurement.

Roger Brodeur, president of the board of directors, states, “Rota’s knowledge, experience and background in managing and overseeing a 24 bed homeless shelter in Maryland make her an ideal leader to implement Tedford Housing’s plans for the next decade. Those plans include creating a resource center with extensive in-house services for our guests and for the local community.”

“I am elated to have the opportunity to join Tedford Housing, and I appreciate the confidence of the board of directors in selecting me to serve as its new executive director,” says Knott. “I look forward to building on the strong foundation created by Craig Phillips during his tenure as executive director, and to furthering Tedford Housing's mission by enhancing our ability to serve members of our community who are experiencing or are in danger of homelessness. Tedford Housing has a long history of creating pathways from homelessness to home for residents of the Midcoast, and I am committed to working with the board of directors and staff to create a significant and lasting impact for those in need of safe, stable shelter.”
